The Charity

Our start

Smile for Brooklyn, Inc. was founded by family out of love, and supported by friends and strangers who were touched by Brooklyn’s smile, spunkiness, and inability to give up. For most of them Brooklyn’s story is their first introduction to this devastating form of Pediatric Cancer. The very smile that drew them close, has now created a burning passion to make sure Brooklyn, her family, and the countless battles looming ahead have a glimmer of hope, when faced with this unimaginable news.


Goals set; goals achieved

Smile for Brooklyn, Inc. was founded with four basic principles in mind and we are pleased to note we hit each of these milestones in our first year.

  • To provide hope that we can survive and find a cure for DIPG
  • To build awareness in the community/US regarding DIPG; what it is and how to help
  • To raise money to help fund research for a cure for DIPG
  • To provide financial support, emotional support, and guidance to families battling DIPG
